Rise and Shine: Automating Your Mornings for an Easier Rise

by Vault Smart Home


We all have personal morning routines, whether we rise before the sun does or barely make it out of bed before it comes down for the day. Here are a few ways smartening and automating your morning routine can make getting up just a little easier.


Make the process a little easier on the eyes

For much of human history, work and leisure hours revolved around sunrise and sunset. By using smart lighting and routines, your morning can begin less abruptly than simply switching on the lights. With this automation, mornings can be easier on the eyes than ever before!

Get Your morning Joe on demand

While your morning routine may include a stop by the local cafe or coffee shop, the fastest way to get your caffeine fix is at home using technology. Having a smart plug allows any coffee maker with a mechanical switch to connect to your smart home ecosystem. A simple plug combined with voice commands or automated routines eliminates the need to wait in line or drive out of the way for your coffee.

Wake up as snug or frigid as needed

One major deterrent from people getting up is the ambient temperature in their bedroom. Getting out of your warm bed to meet with the cold, hardwood or concrete floor can seem torturous after a good night’s sleep. Through thermostat automation, you can ensure your room is as warm or cool as your body needs to get the day started ideally!


While there are many convincing reasons for upgrading your smart home, morning routine improvements are among the most persuasive. If you have any interest in giving your morning routine a boost, or automating any other part of your day to smooth out rough patches, call Vault.Smart Home or visit vaultsmarthome.com today!

While making smart home improvements can sound like an arduous task, it has never been easier to upgrade your home’s tech!  Follow our beginner’s guide for adding smart features and automation to any home.


Research the features that most interest you

It is true that the home has never been more connected or upgradeable, however, not every person needs to purchase every device on the market. Researching important features and useful upgrades online can take much of the pressure off of committing to purchase a smart home system. Along with personal research, a smart home salesperson is always available to guide you through a system tailored to your wants and needs for your home.


Make an installation appointment with a technician

Retrofitting an older home can seem like a lost cause for the less technology-adept homeowner. Luckily, professional smart home technicians can carry the burden of installing technology from the most basic products to the most complex. Schedule an appointment whenever you are available and relax as a pro sets up your new system. On top of installing and testing new kit, technicians are also trained to walk homeowners through the basics of operating the smart home system.


Set up automation to improve your life

If smart home systems weren’t made to work on your schedule, what would the point be? Knowing this, your tailored system is designed specifically to improve your life. With the aid of an easy-to-use application, your smart home can be automated with the tap of a button to save you time and money while providing for your safety and wellbeing.

While this post cannot physically hold your hand through the process of beginner home automation, hopefully you feel equipped to begin the journey to a smarter home.
